The East Point Trade Center in Dauphin and Lebanon counties could soon get another warehouse property to join facilities already in use by General Mills.
Earlier this week, Texas-based Hillwood Investment Properties received land development approvals from Derry and North Londonderry townships to build a 375,000-square-foot structure.
No tenants are under contract, and there are no current plans to move forward with construction, said Gary Frederick, Hillwood’s senior vice president of development.
“All we’ve done is plan approval. There is no linkage to this plan and General Mills,” he said. “One thing at a time.”
General Mills already occupies about 1.4 million square feet in the 163-acre center.
Part of the center also is in Palmyra. However, the site of the possible building addition on North Lingle Avenue, which is about 25 acres, is just in Derry and North Londonderry townships. An intermunicipal agreement still needs to be executed over the amount of impervious coverage allowed, said Charles Emerick, Derry Township’s director of community development.
